Tara Ferguson

I came to NH through the WIOA program. Lisa Kelly is a fantastic advisor who helped me tailor a program that exactly met my needs. I enrolled in two classes, both taking advantage of the remote distance learning option using Adobe Connect. I attended both classes from my computer at home. The lessons are world class, and the instructors are subject matter experts in their fields. Both instructors really care about their students, and I am still in email contact with both.

This is an organization that you can trust to help you hone the skills you need on the job or determine a course of study to launch you to the next level. I strongly endorse New Horizons. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The personnel at New Horizons are for the most part very helpful and they are concerned with helping me get my CompTIA +A certification. I am confident that I will achieve the certification and become a bonafide technician.

New Horizons Computer Training Center of Nashville provided the learning environment to enhance my job skills to make me a viable candidate in the job market. Lisa Kelly, my Educational Consultant, provided the knowledge, support and encouragement to keep my course studies scheduled for a successful outcome.

I really enjoyed the variety of learning scenarios., The "live" classroom instructors and the "online" instruction offered me a lot of flexibility in the scheduling of my courses. And, since the courses are recorded, I could use them over and over again during my review to be successful at test time. All staff members are very supportive and helpful.New Horizons also provides job placement support and resources to help students build a professional resume and then they prepare us for interviews. Employers frequently inquire with the school for potential applicants thus giving New Horizon students an edge. I would highly recommend New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville to anyone wishing to improve their career potential.

They offer a mind-boggling array of I.T. courses in a beautiful scenic setting. My Education Consultant/Coordinator Shane was both knowledgeable and very professional in helping me understand what skill sets are set for growth and highly sought after by employers. Great settings and location are meaningless without a good system of delivering high quality technical training to a variety of ways people respond to learning. I was sold when sampled them all, instructor-led, web-based, hands-on, recorded with access to instructors by chat, text books and manuals on line and PDF (e-books). Self-paced or follow along is there to choose from at will. All of my instructors are certified with real world I.T. experience and are happy to explain and break down concepts without sounding condescending. What more could I ask for??? More equipment for hands on. I have acquired some on my own cheap or free, which aid me in my quest for technical excellence.

Nashauna Ellison

I'm currently a student at New Horizons and I love it. Lisa Kelley was my education consultant and she has been awesome. I was out of work and not sure what direction I wanted to pursue. She made time to speak with me upon us meeting and has not lost touch since. She checks on me to be sure my classes are going well and being sure I don't need anything.

My instructor Ms. Loretta is very knowledgeable and prompt which helps me with independent studies. They have a very professional learning environment and flexibility for those with families and jobs. I definitely made the right decision and would encourage one to join our school for endless opportunities.

Yolanda Bennett

As a former student of New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Nashville, I can’t say enough positive things about New Horizons. From the staff, my Education Counselor Lisa Kelley took the time to listen to what I was looking for then helped me choose which classes would be best for me given what I wanted to accomplish.

The class instructor Loretta McDonald is extremely knowledgeable with multiple degrees, certifications, and years of experience in the field. She makes sure that everyone in class understands the course material and why it’s important to your healthcare career. Ms. Loretta creates a fun and relaxed environment that makes learning easier. However, the main thing about Ms. Loretta is that if you’re willing to put in the work and participate in the learning process she’ll be right there with you to answer your questions, to make sure you understand the course material and that you can pass the certification exam(s).

New Horizons of Nashville has a 2-year career placement service that will help you in your job search and to help prepare you for a position after you’ve passed your exam(s). Tracy Sullivan is an awesome resource for the entire student body. She helped me rewrite my resume for the position I wanted instead of my previous position. Although, New Horizons does not guarantee job placement, New Horizons does provide you all the tools and resources you’ll need to find your next position. Everyone at New Horizons Nashville is 100% committed to helping you succeed, from the President to the IT Tech, other instructors, to the receptionists.

The receptionist(s) will become one of your most favorite New Horizons staff member(s). They greet you with a big smile and an exuberant hello each morning, which helps your mental well-being, and for your constitutional well-being freshly baked chocolate chip cookies every day at 2:00 PM; just awesome. Again, check them out, I think you’ll be very pleased with New Horizons' approach to higher learning.

 

Jerry Alexander

I love New Horizons!!! They have such a friendly and helpful staff. My education consultant, Jennifer Miller, has been amazing! I decided to get certified in Microsoft office and found them on a web search. It has been such a pleasant experience and I feel like I've really accomplished something! I started out with very little computer experience and now I'm finally feeling caught up with the rest of the world! I highly recommend New Horizons.

 

Amy Biggs

I went to New Horizons after a traumatic life experience. I hadn't worked outside the home in over 35 years and really didn't know what to do. Well, the New Horizons staff was incredible. My Account Executive, Shane, was knowledgeable and kind. He pointed me in the right direction. My classes were great--from instructors to material to the comfort of the facility. I was so pleased with everything. If you need a new start or continued education I can recommend New Horizons whole-heartedly!

 

LeGwen Hamilton

I have taken numerous classes New Horizons Nashville and couldn’t be happier. Jennifer Miller my account executive is awesome and extremely knowledgeable and caring. Jennifer’s knowledge in the process of setting me up with a plan and applying the GiBill towards my certification training was apparent from day one. I was out of work and trying to get back into IT after being out for 6 years and she had me hit the ground running. I am now employed with a lot of help from Tracy Sullivan on my resume and interview skills along with her numerous career contacts within Nashville I was able to get numerous interviews with the only problem being which job to take. The instructors are very knowledgeable and all the instructors I had answered any questions I had and kept the class on task. New Horizons gives you the tools to be successful and especially love the virtual server access when it comes to getting ready for a performance-based exam. The tools are given and along with that it is up to the individual to do their part and prepare for the exam by studying. You walk in the door and you feel welcome. Top veteran friendly company in my opinion.

 

James Robertson

I had a great experience from start to finish with New Horizons Nashville. My rep Shane guided me through the process and was incredibly helpful and responsive. He was great at having everything ready to go (paperwork, instructions, etc). Everybody at New Horizons is friendly, knowledgeable and engaged. The staff was wonderful, friendly, and very customer/student oriented. I took the PMP Course and really liked my instructor, Clay McKenzie. I learned so much during the class. He made a very voluminous subject matter easy to understand and broken down into smaller sections. He was always available to us during breaks, lunch, or after class if we needed additional assistance. I would highly recommend anybody who is looking to add to their professional skills or certifications to check out New Horizons.

 

Alix Laurain

I spent nearly two months in the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers for five courses and got 3 certifications. So I can testify that New Horizons Nashville has the best team: very professional, kind and oriented for customer service. I have never had such an experience where employees were so willing to make me succeed. They all encouraged and supported me. The hardware works and the professors are very devoted to make you understand your software. So thank you all, you helped me so much!

 

Sandrine Thabeau-Russell

The learning environment and New Horizon's "Blended Learning Methods", to me has been the most helpful. I want to commend everyone at New Horizon's Nashville center who have been part of my learning experience. And, Yes, Yes, Yes...I will definitely recommend this center for enhancing one's skills to add to your resume. P.S. --(Kim B. and LeGwen H...Thanks a whole bunch!!)

 

Andrea Thomas

The classes are very interactive in person and remotely online. The instructors knew how to break down material in several ways to help me digest the material in a way I learn. The study guide and hands on activity software helped a lot.

 

Ashton Hobbs

Shane Willmon is an excellent educational consultant and very informative regarding my PMP information. The staff are thoughtful and always willing to help. Thank you for a good experience!

 

Andrea Walker

My education consultant Shane Willmon helped me in ways that I never expected, and that I could never have done on my own. I worked for a company for 17 years. The last 5 remotely. New CIO cancelled work from home and I live 2 states away. As I started to look for work locally I realized that I needed education to fill some holes to make me employable in "The Real World." Shane listened. We agreed on a plan. He guided me and helped me find funding for a class I need to fill holes in my education. A real "Class Act."

 

Paul Nielander

New horizons is a great school to get a new start. The staff is very supportive and the instructors are very knowledgeable and patient.

 

Ladonna Jackson

New Horizons has changed my life. I was an IT person stuck with nowhere to go. They took the time to talk to me, explain what was going on in the IT world, then told me what they could do to help. After starting classes, I leaned that I really wanted to go down a different path. I talked to them about it. They saw what I was seeing and changed my classes. Now I am in a job that I love, and happy. Thank you New Horizons. Without you all I would still be lost. If you want to learn, grow and just want a different job, please stop by and talk to them. They are wonderful people and they care.

 

John OMalley

Enjoyed working with Shane. I look forward on getting my PMP. I recommended.

 

Rafael Gutierrez

Excellent school excellent staff always pleasant. Clean faculty. Jennifer is the best veteran advocate always has all the answers for me. Couldn’t have anyone else to better represent New Horizons. I will recommend New Horizon to all my fellow Veterans

 

Corwin Reid

New Horizons Nashville is an extremely friendly and helpful IT learning facility. Shane Willmon has been instrumental in my working toward my MCSA certification and beyond. I would highly recommend this institution to those looking to improve their career opportunities. As a retired Soldier transitioning into the civilian workforce, the services offered at New Horizons Nashville have ensured my success.

 

Darrin Crowder

I was starting over after nearly twenty years in another industry when I discovered New Horizons. I'd always been technically savvy, and I've always been interested in the world of technology, so I reached out to them and met with an account representative just a few days later. From there, I took four classes to earn CompTIA certifications -- I learned as much in a six-month period as I had in the last few years at my previous job. The staff was friendly and helpful; the teachers were excellent -- the courses were intensive, but very interesting, and each prepared me to pass the certification exam. After I got my certifications, the job placement staff helped me update my resume and reach out to potential employers, and within a week, I had several job interviews, and within a month, I was employed as a Technical Analyst at an IT provider. Without the great staff of New Horizons, I might not have made the transition into a new and exciting job field. Thank you all!

 

Jeremy Witt

I was extremely satisfied with my experience at New Horizons. Lisa and Tracy were very helpful before, during, and especially after taking the class. I would highly recommend them for your training needs.

 

Danny Burns

A clean, friendly and professional environment that makes learning very easy! The staff treats you like family to ensure a positive training and learning experience. S. Willmon, T. Sullivan, L. Hamilton, Mrs. Kim, Chris and others are the best!

 

Perez Long

Wonderful and helpful staff. Awesome place for training and job placement. Highly recommend!!

 

Tracy Tramel

I cannot speak highly enough about NH Nashville. 100%! A+, Network+, Security+, Project + and PMP Certifications. Thank you very much Jennifer Miller.

 

John Burgher

I was out of work and desperately looking for a job when Shane Willmon actually found me. I was at a job fair at a hotel near Briley Parkway. Shane introduced me to the WIOA program. When he told me I could get my certifications for free, I jumped on it! I have two certifications and working on the last one, which will give me my MCSD in software development. I've learned a lot studying the archived videos and can't wait to get my MCSD. New Horizons has been a blessing for me.

 

Ray Levron

“New Horizons has a very diverse and fun group of individuals to learn from. In the few classes that I have taken there has never been a situation or class that I needed assistance with that my account executive couldn't get me in or that the instructors couldn't help me out with. The ability to be able to select a live instructor or learn on your own program with instructors available to assist you is very helpful. The entire staff helps to make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. I will forever and always refer anyone who wants/needs any computer training to New Horizons!! They are the best in their business!!”

 

Michael - Carthage, TN

“Hands down New Horizons has been a dream come true. The Instructors are by far the best educational leaders in the industry.

If you’re looking into building yourself an educational foundation New Horizons is definitely the ‘perfect place’ to be.”

 

Renee - Nashville, TN.

“After being laid off from my prior job I decided a career change in Medical Coding and billing. New Horizons has really been there for me and my instructor was the best that anyone could hope for. If I had to do this all over again, I would definitely choose New Horizons for my new found profession.”

 

Kathy - Omaha, NE

“My co-workers and I have attended numerous classes at New Horizons.

Karl - Plainfield, IN

“I attended the VMware vSphere 4.1 with ESXI and vCenter I was very impressed by detail of service I received from New Horizons.  New Horizons was easy to work with from the time I called to inquire about a class, in speedy delivery of all the class materials, in scheduling the class to fit may needs and budget. I took the class remotely but the instructor made me feel like I was right there in the classroom with him. The instructor was very professional with his presentation of the material.  He kept us engaged with what he was presenting and it was easy to follow along in the books they provided. The course was very well laid out, easy to follow and Lab material walked you step by step through the whole lab presentation with nothing to guess about.  Feedback was always encouraged all the way through and after the course was complete. I like the fact that they offered a way to get their certification certificate if you wanted it.” 

 

Michael - Jacksonville, AR

“I have been a student here at New Horizons in the past and keep coming back through all of my IT career. This is by far the best learning environment I have ever experienced. Keep up the good work!”

 

Vinny - Hilliard, OH

“It has been YEARS since I attended college! EVERYONE on the New Horizons team has made my ‘getting back into the swing of things’ a most pleasant experience, and it's just as easy if not easier for me to learn than it was when I first did a long.... LONG time ago! :-)”

 

Tonya - Memphis, TN

“I was really nervous undergoing a career change and going back to take classes in support of that, but I shouldn't have been. New Horizons made it comfortable for me to get the right training and get right back into it. They have lived up to their strong reputation for excellence in training. What I didn't realize; however, was what a valuable networking resource it would be. I have thoroughly enjoyed being surrounded by people who are not only genuinely interested in learning but who have a lot of value to add to the learning experience of others because of all their years of practical work experience.”

 

Allison - Memphis, TN

“I felt comfortable with the staff and instructors from the moment I met them. That made it easier for me to focus on my training and ask questions without feeling uncomfortable. I enjoyed each day in class and I still keep in touch with some of the people I met.”

Shakimberly - Olive Branch, MS

“Well, what can I say; New Horizons is an excellent place when you are in transition. They have so much to offer not only in getting certified but, also, when you've been out of school for so long or haven't gone to school, they offer Basic English, how to interview, etc. New Horizons also has amazing staff. They are compassionate and will do everything they can do to help you achieve your goal or go to the next level. I recommend any business to send their employees. Not only business, anybody thinking about going to school. Enroll at New Horizons; you’ll be glad you did!!!”

 

Brenda - Collierville, TN

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. New Horizons teaches this us habit. The truth is that being at New Horizons Computer Learning Center was a truly enlightening experience for me, and has helped me cope with these hard times in more ways than one. As a young student, the facility introduced me to the real professional world, and taught me how my talents as an everyday human being can be used to shape my future in the professions available for me.”

 

Chris - Memphis, TN

“Because of my time and experience at New Horizons, I was able to find a great career at a thriving leader in world technologies! I'm very grateful to the staff and career counselors at New Horizons who have helped in making my dreams a reality and whole-heartedly encourage anyone thinking of following the IT path to begin first at New Horizons.”

 

Mike - Millington, TN

“New Horizons has been a great training resource for my IT staff as well as for my own training needs.  They have strong knowledgeable instructors along with excellent training materials and interactive tools that instill up to date and accurate training for the subject matter that they cover. Constructing a training solutions that integrate with your business needs for both day and evening training is just what we needed when we worked with New Horizons to become our IS training partner. I look forward to seeing the new training classes that are always being added so we can keep up with the ever changing challenges we all face in the IT world.  Keep up the good work!”

 

Jeff - Memphis, TN

“I am in the Health Information Management Program and Deb has been excellent!  Any and every time there is a question or something needs further clarification, she has gone above and beyond to give me an answer. Also, when personal crises arise, Deb has always been able to keep me focused. I have learned so much at New Horizons. Thank you!”

 

Cheryl - Omaha, NE

“I have been out of school for 39 years.  It was not easy for me to make the decision to go back to school. Everyone at New Horizons has been wonderful and very helpful and supportive. They are not just interested in you learning something new but care about you as an individual. I have made it a point to tell others that if you are looking for a new career or further your education to make an appointment with New Horizons Computer Center.”

 

Mary- Omaha, NE

“I took on online live class and was pleasantly surprised at how easy and effective the given class was at New Horizons. The instructor was very responsive and even involved the online participants in all the events, including Q&A’s and in-between fun activities. I had a real fun time and walked away with a better impression of how online classes are conducted these days. I will definitely take some more classes and encourage my friends as well.”

 

Andrew - Woodbridge, NJ

“New Horizons is a great learning facility. I have taken several courses there, and I’m always impressed with the knowledge level of the trainers, and the quality of the training rooms. I would definitely recommend them for anyone looking to learn.”

 

Brian - Omaha, NE

“Coordinating computer training needs for our people is so easy when working with New Horizons. I appreciate the team's willingness to customize course offerings for our people as needed. I have worked with 3 reps from New Horizons and all have demonstrated top notch customer service.  It is a pleasure working with New Horizons...thank you for your great work.”

 

Angela- Lincoln, NE

“It is great to have instructors who actually have and are working with the tools and techniques they are teaching about. It is nice to be able to talk about a subject deeper and not have a blank stare.”

 

Josh - Omaha, NE

“I have always enjoyed attending classes at New Horizons training center and remotely. The instructors are very attentive to different levels of education and assisting their students with any difficulties they may be having.”

 

Joe - Omaha, NE

“My learning needs were of a more specific nature, so I requested a one on one training session. It was great and I was able to bring in examples of spreadsheets, etc. that I use at work. It allowed me to ask and get answers to item that help me be more productive and efficient.” 

 

Shirl - Memphis, TN

“The teachers were great and made sure you learned all that you needed to be ready to take on the job interviews and get the job you trained for. The cost was fair for the amount of courses that were available to be taken if you needed them. There were so many courses that it would be hard to complete all of them. I would recommend New Horizons to anybody that needed computer help.”
